  • The environment is very nice. Peaceful. Very spacious
  • The monastery sisters there are very polite and greets you very respectfully. Walking distance from main door to Buddha is about 1.5km very far and hot in summer. Arm yourself with umbrella! If you wanna hear some life divines the sisters there will help u explain a lot that you drew.
  • Very nice building and view but the visit is only in Chinese. No English information provided. Very strange mix between religion, museum and a mall (you have to pass through shop before visiting the memorial, there even is a Starbucks coffee)
  • A good place for buddhist to hang around. Don't miss out the buffet lunch at level 2.
  • Oh very nice and beautiful temple, most of the persons can speak English and this temple has the teeth of Buda.
